How has Covid-19 affected you?
ADASS have formed an Elected Member Social Care Commission to investigate the impact of Covid-19 on people (adults aged 18+), their families and communities and what this tells us about the role our communities should play in supporting people to live independently at home.
Short Breaks for Disabled Children & Young People (0-25) Consultation – help us to shape Knowsley’s offer
Knowsley Council is reviewing its Short Breaks offer, looking at what can be done for children and young people aged 0 to 25, and we would like you to tell us what works well and what could be better. Your feedback will be used to improve services in the near future.
What are Short Breaks?
Short Breaks are intended to give parents/carers of children and young people with disabilities a break from their caring responsibilities. Short breaks should equally provide children and young people with disabilities opportunities to have fun, make friends and develop skills. Short breaks come in a variety of formats and at different times of the day, depending on the type of provision and the needs of the child and their family.
Please take a few moments to fill out the questionnaire. All answers will be treated confidentially, please read the KMBC Privacy Notice before you start the survey. If you have any queries or would like to discuss anything about this questionnaire further, please don’t hesitate to contact Paul Simon on 0151 443 4736 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org

How would you like Knowsley to look by 2030?
That’s the question partners across Knowsley are asking people who live, work or study in the borough as part of their work to develop a new long-term vision for the borough.
This work will consider the type of place Knowsley could be and what it could offer the people living and working here in 2030. To be able to do this, we need your help.
What matters to you? What could make a difference to your future?
We want to understand how the people living, working and studying in Knowsley today, feel about the place and what their hopes for the future are. We need people from all parts of the community – residents, businesses, young and old – to share their views, opinions and experience of life here today. We need to know what matters to you and what you would like to see in the future. This isn’t just about the physical environment or facilities but other issues like education,
jobs and health.
We are now beginning a period of in-depth engagement with the community. The new long term strategy for Knowsley will be developed over the next 18 months, will launch in 2020 and run until 2030. You can find out more, and share your views, by completing the online survey or picking up a survey from public buildings across the borough.
